Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said he has his weight where he’s had it each year coming into training camp, weighing in on the question about his weight Sunday.
“I got my weight where I’ve been to each year coming into camp,” Romo said. “I feel good about that. You just keep carrying it over, though. You’re always looking to be in great shape.”
The Cowboys list Romo at 236 on the opening roster of training camp. That’s 6 pounds heavier than the 230 he was listed at in the regular season last year.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Romo is only 1 pound over his playing weight and looks “really lean to me,” considering the quarterback was unable to work out as much as normal during a recovery from surgery to remove a cyst in his back.
Romo said he weighs between 227 and 230, “depending on the day you catch me.”
Romo said he spent the last two weeks in Southern California, working on his conditioning at a boot camp. It included running in the mountains.
“I recommend it, but not for as long, maybe,” he said. “It was great. It just got me where I needed to be.”
